BRUNSWICK (WGME) -- Secretary of State Matt Dunlap is visiting polling places Tuesday, observing the voting process and meeting with local officials.
Secretary Dunlap says the state is expecting a strong turnout.
Dunlap says he's expecting 60 to 65 percent of eligible voters in Maine to cast a ballot.
"It's a very big turnout and I think it's a reflection of the time we're in. This is a pivotal election. The race for governor, our next governor will be decided this week. And some of the things on people's minds are obviously jobs, the economy, healthcare. This is how we chart that course is coming to vote on Election Day,” Dunlap said.
